Traditional vending machines have taken a back seat to those stocked with healthy food options. As the war on obesity rages on, companies like Fresh Healthy Vending are helping people around the nation take matters into their own hands. As of the end of 2011, they have become one of the fastest growing and most successful franchise systems in the U.S., having sold 95 franchises representing over 1,200 locations throughout 50 states, Canada, and Puerto Rico which was massive growth for the company that started in May 2010.
â€œFresh expects to double sales in 2012, with machine sales slated to top over 2,000 machines,â€ said Jolly Backer, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending. â€œFresh Healthy Vending has been at the forefront of virtually every innovation in the healthy vending industry over the past two years and has already come out of the gate â€˜flyingâ€™ in 2012.â€
Given the success the company has had outside of the U.S., throughout Canada and Puerto Rico, and given the tremendous response from other international markets interested in Fresh franchising, the company will be pushing marketing efforts overseas.
